This paper has equally mistaken tbe counsel a.nd the man. unless, like tbe Tribune ntnnra of New York and Chicago, its lan sruace is used to conceal its thoughts and hr false pretenses to escape the realiza tion of its fears.

Maatlnar Yesterday Editob LiDora: I do Dot remember iik sufficient certainty the cop of resolution passed by the member of tb. bar yesterday, to state It with enurt AiirnYftv. tSul f m esrtaia that It 0 aid enough to cover all questions legiti mately rising out of the lata contempt nroeeedinis by th Criminal Judge this oily. This being so, I respectfully suggest to the committee tbe propriety of directing: their Inquiries to tbe qu linn of imrjeachment of that functionary, and if sufficient ground exists to present to the meeting for its adoption, memo rial to the Legislature asking in im naaohment and removal of William'Bai ter from th office of Judge of tbe Crim inal Conrt in this city for malfeasanoe in office. It may be true that tbe Legislator i very radical in it. opinions and feelings; but at th same time, J know tWa are men In that body who hare some I regard for the right of citizens, tb honor oftbe State, and tbe pnnty or her trioo nals. If tbey relieve ni they will reap tbe full benefit of ft worthy act.. If not, the refusal will only intensify their re sponsibility before the people of the whole State. VT. Our recollection accord with tbe state ment of our corresoondent that tbe res olution wag a broad one, requiring a re port covering the whole question of tbe nower of judicial officers over tbe subject of contempt, and generally to devise and specify the proper course to be taken in the nremises. The reason of an ad journment was, a we understand it, an apprehension that it would be indelicate or imDroDer in the members of tbe bar to give expression to1 their views under a call in which an individual wrong Dad been designated, and pending the trial of a cause involvisg the rights of the same individuals, which had arisen subse auently to the call, and which involved tbe same subject matter. Tbe case was now before a new tribunal, for which tbe members of the bar bad all proper respect, and with which it was regarded as unwise to interfere by any expression precedent to such a decision as it might make. We have no doubt the indication of the opinion of the bar on the whole snbject of the powers of judges who overstep the limits of their legitimate authority will be decided and emphatic And whether the resolution, under which the committee has been appointed, calls for any initiatory steps looking to im peachment or not, it will certainly be very competent and proper for the meet ing; to take action on that subject when again convened on the call of the Presi dent. Mo ttuornm. Judge Woodward, 'now a member of Con areas from Pennsylvania, and for- for manv vears Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of that State, expres ses his opinion emphatically that the constitutional right to try the President does not exist in the Senate, as at pres ent constituted, and with ten States of the Union excluded from a voice in its deliberations. In bis speech in the House a few days since be said M, Snootier an snre am I that the American people will respect this objec thai, i will aav. it i were me resi dent's counsellor, which I am not, I Blviaa him. if vnn nra.fpr articles WUU.U - 1 J I nf imvoaptmnnL tn demur both to Tour jurisdiction and that of the Senate, and 10 issue a pruciBiuaiiuu gtviuK ;wm II tha world notice that while be held himonif imnnRphahle for his misdemean ors in office before tbe constitutional t-ihnnal ha nftver would subject the office he holds in trust for the people to tbe irregular, unconstitutional, irag mentary bodies who proposed to strip him of it. Such a proclamation, with the army and navy in hand to sustain it, would meet with a popular response toai would make an end ot lmpeacnmeai ana imoeacbers. This is the outspoken character ot advice which the ablest men of nerve in the country are now beginning to give President Johnson. Being in the right is nothing, and argument having the force of moral demonstration is nothing in these days. But the people are with Andrew Johnson, and all that is needed is backbone to stand up to the people in defense of bis and their constitutional iehts. If he has but that, and chooses bravely to resist by all the means in his power the constitutional encroachment I DOW eiieUipiCU lUrUUBU Mia UCJHIUUUi L will be ingta;Be(i and triumphant All the signs indicate that he commands the situation. We shall see whether he will maintain the' vantage ground on which he stands. We verily believe tbat be will never be deposed without his own consent And to give that, when there is no law before which he is bound to suc cumb, and when the Constitution, which he is bound irretrievably to support forbids, will be to depart from his own expressed determination in one of his latest messages, and to sink unwept, nn honored and disgraced into a condition of dishonor worse than mere obscurity. We believe that with the aid of his coun sel he will stand firm and rise grandly to a proud pre-eminence as the chief de fender of tbe Constitution. We shall gee. ParUMta lansMtaakneent. The New York Timet, which is the leading abolition journal of the country, for ability tbe equal and for elevation and dignity of character the superior of the Tribune, of th same city, speaks of the impeachment aa a partisan move. The paper of the more conservative Renublican class accord with the game view. The Timet sars : Reason. Sudiment or eatriotism has nothing to do with the purpose now pro- ciaimea. in n inception ana in it ex ercise it is partisanship worked up to the point of frenzy and aggravated with a personal hate of which many who yester day voted for impeachment will shortly no aaoaoacKi.

It is notioeablo tbat not iagi a.ffrn ! to ba seen ia tb galleriea. Everything is conducted with perfect order and deoorum. L Th bill to amend lb judiciary act of mi ram over from tb Hons signed and received tha signature of tb Presi dent pro tern. Th Renata insisted on the amendment to the consular appropriation bill, and appointed a committee or coniereaco. At nna o'clock. . tha morning hour having expired, the Chief Juitico took tbe chair, and the 8ergeant-at-Arm marl tha proclamation In tbe usual form. and tha Secretary read the journal of th last meeting of the Court- As a large number of Representative, beaded by th manager oftbe impeach ment, wer alanding in file outaide the dnnr. a motion was made by Mr. Howard, that the Sergeaat-at-Arma notily the House that th Senate ia organized aa a Court of Impeachment and ready to proceed with the trial of Andrew John son immediately. ' Roon after the managera and members of tbe House took the seats provided for them, and tbe Senators wbo had not done so took the oath. The return of tbe Sergeant.at-Arms from his service of the summons on the President was read, when, on motion of Johnson, tbe counsel of the President were notified of the commencement of the proceedings, and MeasrC Stanbery, Curtis and Nelson appeared and took their seat at the table, on the right of the Chief Justice, and opposite to the managera, who wer seated on tbe left Butler, the remaining manager, here came in, and shortly after another depu tation from the House entered, headed by the Speaker, Washburn, of Illinois, and McPherson, the Clerk of tbe House, and ranged themselves behind tbe bar. Stanbery arose, and, addressing the Chief Justice, read the answer of the President entering bis appearance, and naming as bis counsel, Messrs. Stanbery,' Curtis, Nelson, Black and Evarta, and aniline a reasonable time for tbe prepara tion of tis defense the period of forty days, and citing various cases in which neriods aa long, in proportion to the magnitude of the case, bad been granted. Bingham, in bebalf of the managers, contended that the eighth rule provided that on the appearance of the President he was required to file hia answer, anS in case bis answer was not filed, then the trial should proceed as on a plea of " not guilty." He claimed, therefore, tbat the trial should proceed forthwith. Curtis, in reply, referred to tbe cases of Judge Humphreys and others, and argued that the rule was susceptible of no 'such construction as was put en it by Bingham. Nelson followed, and enlarged upon the same views as his colleague. Stanbery expressed greater surprise than he had before felt at this claim put forward by the managers, and said there seemed to be a disposition to hurry through this momentous trial, as if it were a case before a police court He argued from the working of the other rules that the appearance day was not to be the day for answering, and also the trial day. Also, that two of the Presi dent's counsel were not present, and that no oriDortunity had been offered for tbe preparation of a defense or the calling of witnesses. He said that in tbe worst days of the Star Chamber such an at tempt to hurry through a trial had never been made. He spoke very warmly, saying there " seemed, to have been a trap set for tbe President and big coun sel." Butler asked to be heard in bebalf of the managers, and asked why railroad speed should not be used ia this trial. He contended that the roles and prece dents of ordinary courts were not appli cable to this trial- Io ordinary trials no laoger would result from delay, but in th is case tbe necessity for prompt action was pressing. Ibe respondent at toe iar controlled the power of tbe nation, and might in any moment of passion, prejudice or make wrong nse of it, for the injury and ruin of the country. The business of tbe War Depaatment would stop until the result of this trial was reached- The pulse of tha nation ali in nertnrbation while th trial eoe on. He clai med that an early day should fixed for the defendant a appearance, then if he caa show tbat be has not bad time to prepare, trantbim then fur ther time- We, on the part of the House Representative, which we ara her anrcaentinr. ak that tha rule adonted by tb Senate iat the government of thi case may be enforced. It is for tb Sen ate to ear whether thi rule shall be sus tained as a role to govern the case, or bother it shall be changed ; but stand- ig as a rule, a at this time, we ask its enforcement 'At tbe conclusion of his remarks, tb Chief Justice said the motion would be armed for an hour, ia accordance with the rules- Mr. Biegham roe, aad said ha had been greatly surprised at beariag th kasty words which bad "bee dropped from tb lips of bis learaad friend, btao-b-rr. and asserted tbat th only (notiv of tb manager was to enforce th ml hick U 6naU bad made, aad prevent , dilatory lias of defease. Tbe Chief Jaatica wat abovt to put lh qutstion on 8tanbry'a 'motion, when Mr. EJmonJa offered an order that April lb first b tha day appointed for thi filing of tha Tresi dent' answer, and thai within three davs thereafter th mana gers' replication b filed, and on th 6th day of April th trial proceed. On motion, at two o'clock th Senate retired fur consultatio'a, and at 4:10 re turned to their Chamber, and the toun reassembled, when: lb' Chisf Justice announoad thai the notion under con sideration had been overruled, anJ an order waa anterad that tha President be required to file bis answer on tha 234 of March, ' -v . Bingham offered an order that on tb filing of an application by tbe managers th trial (hall proceed therewith. The Chief Justic submitted the order to th Senate, and on the adoption of th oueation th yta and naya were taiea, resulting yea, 23 ; naya, 2Q. So th order was denid. Wilson said he had com bore expect ing to murder political discussion, and under th impression that the forma of nmoMtJinf would be purely judicial in their character, buti like the honorable managers, be did not expect that tbey would b limited by the forms of ordi nary tribunals. Ha thought liberality should ba extended by this high court to an nnusual degree, and coutended that the application of the defendant waa one deserving euch ' treatment He cited a rule of the Court of Tennessee, which nrovides for tha postponement of a trial to another term, when the defendant has not bad time to prepare bis answer, lit spok of the great magnitude of this case, and areued the necessity of cau tious deliberation, and the impropriety of railroad speed. He said the last two charges of tbe House of Representatives opened " Pandora' box," which would necessitate a full investigation or all tbe nointa of difference between Congress and the President, and would make the trial almost interminable. Conkline offered as an amendment, that unless cause for the delay be shown, the trial shall proceed immediately after tbe filing of the application. Bingham expressed the satisfaction ot the managers with Conkling's amend ment He denied that the managers were desirous of indecent haste, but said they did wish to avoid delay in this im portant mayer. The people demand tbat (here should be no delay in the trial of the most flagrant betrayer of trust that tbe world had ever seen. : ' - Tbe Question was put on Conkling's. amendment and resulted ayes 40, nays 10 ; and the order, aa amended, waa then adopted without division. At 6:15 the Court adjourned until the 23 J inst The House resolved itself into com mittee of tbe whole, formally proceeded to the Senate chamber, returned and ad journed to the 23d instant Lata from Washington, t Speolal to th Louisville Courier.

All of them are thoroughly versed in constitutional law and political history. Ther i no doubt that counsel on both side will find enough to ay.
